CRITIC REVIEWS

Tiny Mix Tapes

Entrañas is the unnameable us, the fireworks and the semi-automatics. It seeks uncovering and discovers trauma. It is elegy and bruise, sound and echo. It screams in the face of silence.

Pitchfork

It is darker than Mutant; it’s heavier and more unrelenting.

Resident Advisor

Following two uneven albums for Mute, Ghersi returns to the mixtape format with Entrañas, which features some of his most arresting and unsettling work since &&&&&.

Consequence of Sound

Arca’s music can often come off as obtrusive, cerebral sounds with no clear entry point. Opposed to the restraint present in parts of Xen and Mutant, Entrañas is purely visceral, constantly obliterating conventions.

Track by Track Analysis:

1. Perdida --> nice synths and distorted beats, great opener
2. Torero --> very dark vibe, glitchy beats and moaning samples
3. Culebra --> is that a goat at the beginning? beats are so fucking cool!
4. Vicar --> industrial beats so fucking heavy, sounds like a whip!
5. Cement Garden Interlude --> very high pitched noise, not a bad interlude, though
6. Baby Doll --> Holy shit, that industrial beat came out of nowhere wtf?! (sounds like ponyboy)

she surpasses her own barrier everyday. when you think there's no way for her to be more consistent and revolutionary: there she is.

it’s not very often that a project will bring the emotion of fear out of me with it’s mere sound alone. the music presented hosts indescribable sounds that seemingly come from an unknown form of life being birthed, and having a long existence of which seems dreadful. pain of some kind that echoes shrieks of absolute horror.

Arca has never presented a soundscape more apocalyptic

In Entrañas you have the best of two worlds, the rudeness of "Mutant" and the delicacy of "Arca". He was his best work until the arrival of Arca
